The darling little Minuet Weigela (Weigela florida 'Minuet') is a dwarf shrub with showy flowers and foliage! Enjoy the spring, yellow-throated, hot-pink flowers with a trumpet-like appearance that appear for a dramatic display in your yard. As an added bonus, the flowers sporadically bloom again throughout summer, an extra boon for your pollinators and Hummingbirds!

Your Minuet Weigela is a colorful plant even when not in full bloom. The elliptic leaves have a slight purple hue, lending them an attractive color all season long. Growing just 2-3 feet tall and wide, these colorful little pops of color fit anywhere!

Minuet Weigela has a dense, rounded form and is hardier than some other dwarf cultivars. In fact, it was developed in Canada, and has improved cold tolerance throughout USDA growing zones 4 to 8.

Planting and Application:

Its dwarf size makes Minuet Weigela a darling accent perfect for your small garden beds, courtyards, or other spots where you'd love to have something this colorful, but just don't have a lot of space. Plant a few Minuets' for here-and-there enjoyment of their colorful show! You'll enjoy the curb appeal, cut flowers, and nectar for bees and butterflies!

These would make an attractive, small hedge in your landscape, or use one as a colorful accent in your perennial beds. Use as facer plants or low edging along an evergreen hedge or your foundation plantings that may have gotten a bit 'leggy' in their maturity. Plus you'll gain a major pop of color!

Pot up in planters and container gardens! Brighten porches and patios, sunny balconies, and fancy urns throughout the Cottage and Pollinator garden for height and color with ease! Accent your front door or along your pool deck.

  • Re-Blooming Pink & Yellow Flowers
  • Colorful, Purple Tinged Foliage
  • Attracts Butterflies & Hummingbirds
  • Dwarf Compact Petite Size!
  • Facer Plants, Edging, Containers & Bright Accents Anywhere!

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Minuet requires full sun for best flowering but will tolerate a variety of other conditions including some afternoon shade (especially in the hotter of its favored growing zones!). Plant Weigela in well-drained rich soil with moderate, regular moisture. Top dress with a thick layer of wood chip mulch, but please take care to ensure the mulch doesn't touch the stems directly.

It's amenable to pruning, so you can shape it as needed but because of its compact, dwarf size and naturally tidy form, you'll appreciate its low-maintenance nature! Rejuvenate your mature Weigela by pruning out the oldest, fattest stems down to the ground every three years or so. Leave the thin, young stems to provide the most amazing blooms for you!

  • Full Sun & Partial Shade
